2/1 - How To Be A Male Model

From the Cenotaph controversy to the Catwalk

Charlie Gilmour was tabloid enemy #1 when he dangled from the Cenotaph during the student protests of 2010. Now he's a writer and, since being scouted at a Christmas party, a male model.

In this episode, he reveals to Olly what it takes to make Paris Fashion Week in 2016, how to work on your 'walk', and where models hide their drugs...


Elsewhere in what would, if only we were American, be our 'season premiere', Ollie Peart returns with The Zeitgeist - and considers the politics of fear, The West Cornwall Pasty position on #Brexit, and the glorious failure of Microsoft's chat-bot experiment, Tay. 

Plus, Ollie location-searches on behalf of his friend Paul, who has Crohn's and wants to poop in the most glamorous and exciting toilets in Britain. If you have a suggestion for Paul, just tweet us @themodernmann and use hashtag #myfinalpoops.

Meanwhile, Alix Fox returns from Rabbit Island for another series of The Foxhole. This week: the prickly issue of foreskin regeneration, the disputed medical benefits of circumcision, and how the American predilection for penis-cutting originates in the wacky beliefs of Dr Lewis Sayre.
